But it barely edged into 4 stars for me because of the continued lack of strong female characters (the one I had hope for literally made a sandwich for the boys before they did the work), and some pretty weird dissonance moments. Scenes about consent are problematic, often having characters express strong views, then failing to back them up later in the book. There was one pretty confusing red herring moment and it ends abruptly, I won't go into details to respect spoilers, but if that kind of stuff bugs you, be warned!
Still gave it 4 though, because, despite its flaws, I feel compelled to read the next one.
Edit: Dropping down to three stars for the seeds of harmful reasoning around Emma and David's relationship. It's hinted at here, but isn't paid off until early in the next book.
If you didn’t read book one (I have no idea what you are waiting for!!) then I will do a quick explanation. The Dream World is a place “sighted” people go in their dream forms, i.e. fairies, dragons, trolls, etc. However in the real world “un-sighted” people cannot see dream forms and sighted people can. Did that make sense? So Charlie our main character in book one is out of the psych ward in book 2. He is struggling to adjust to his new role in his dream form. As he wasn’t raised by his “people” like he was supposed to. Basically he fell through the cracks and now he is being rushed through the process to save the princess Emma. I still feel an immense connection to Charlie, he is and probably will always be my favorite character. I love his candidness, it’s almost like he forgets to have a filter from head to mouth. Never mind the fact that everyone can read his thoughts which adds a completely hilarious twist to the whole book. Let alone one of his teachers is Benjamin which is probably one of the scariest guys I have ever come across besides the king.
Benjamin aka Benji’s character growth in this book is amazing. I can’t believe how much depth we get on him. I really was not expecting that, I really enjoyed getting his take on everything and how he became attached to the king. I loved getting to see his attachment to the princess and why he is so hard on Charlie. Deep down he really is a softy even though he doesn’t know how to process it on the outside.
I still feel a little uneasy about the David/Emma angle. However I feel as the books come out everything will be explained. I’m not sure how I will feel after it is explained, but that is okay. Emma’s pain in this book just breaks my heart. I really hope to see her stronger in the next book 😦
The side characters!! I cannot say enough good things about the side characters in this book. The ones that we are introduced to in this one are amazing. I hope in the next book we get more on them. I would love background history on them, maybe they could have POV’s in the next book? I’m not mentioning names or what they are in the dream world because I don’t want to do spoilers. I think it’s best just to find out in the book, but Erin knows who I’m talking about 😉
I highly, highly suggest this series.. I am dying to get my hands on the next book!!
